I just got on to my pc and checked out the storm reports for the day. Looks like a small outbreak occured today over N central Florida. NWS in Daytona Beach reported F2 damage with estimated winds as high as 120 mph. A tornado also struck De Land, Florida and did sugnificant damage to a mobile home park 1 person was reported injured. 4 homes on a plantation and another home 5 miles away were demolished 3 mi W of Lake City, Fl. Another house was demolished along with a buisness along with 12 other homes that were damaged as well, 1 injury was reported there. Talk about a really bad Christmas for these folks, 2 people were injured out at the Tampa Bay Golf and Country Club. Severe damage to 15-20 homes, 10 houses left unihabitable with this tornado.

Did anyone see this one coming?
